One day, someone will write an investigative report about how the Grand Theft Auto series has had a larger negative impact on record sales than the arrival of the Internet. Let's face it: there hasn't been a single rap album since The Great Adventures of Slick Rick that touches the GTA series soundtracks for consistency and variety. Plus, where else can you get to actually live out the cartoonish rapper role without any consequence? (Unless your Rick Ross.) Of course the new version, no. 5, which is due out September 17th, Drake's original album date, won't just put the record industry in a temporary slump; entire industries will shut down for a week, marriages will end spontaneously, and Barack Obama will replace his Urban Policy Working Group with staff of Rockstar, GTA's creators.
He wants to give himself time to play the new "Grand Theft Auto."
